      Description

      To build applications, Terrier can be difficult to use. Apart from DOCNO, Terrier assumes that all other information about a document (metadata) is stored outwith of the Terrier system. This means that every developer needs to develop their own metadata structures.

      In small-scale environments, metadata is easy to have - e.g. a serialised hash map. However, developing space-efficient and time-efficient metadata structures in large-scale environments is tricky.

      Terrier should facilitate application development more easier by providing metadata data structure(s) which pickup information about the document during indexing, and can be easily accessed at retrieval time.
